“A Mind of Your Own”
The idea of using drugs to treat depression is an idea who's time is running out, just like the sand falling through the hourglass.

The title of a book review caught my attention in the current issue of Wise Traditions - published by The Weston A. Price Foundation. Then about two thirds into this book review I highlighted: "The medicalization of distress obliterates meaning and creates profit." at which point I Googled the first part of this quote and that led me to a PDF at kellybroganmd.com from where I quote the following:
“Many women credit me with the initiation of life-transformation. Because I believe passionately in the power of lifestyle medicine to produce changes that are greater than the sum of their parts - bigger, bolder shifts in how we relate to life, spirituality, the environment, and even authorities - I see myself as an ambassador to a new way of experiencing health and well-being. This way of being may be built on the ashes of suffering, but may be the way to rise up, phoenix-like, embolden, and stronger than ever. …”
I'm posting this here for a couple reasons. Firstly because I want to generally support spreading the word on this book as an alternative to the apparent prevailing pharma-psych approach. Secondly I wish to begin making reference to the need for "the power ... to produce changes ... shifts in how we relate to ... authorities". This blog began eleven years ago with a seed intention that matches the "medicine" mentioned above. Over the course of this last decade the seed has developed into a healthy "fruit-bearing plant"! "Son of Truth of Self" is "home" to "power" of this nature. I only wish that certain people whom I know who have resorted to anti-depression medication would see this post - or learn of the book by any other means.
